It has always been a very interesting thing, especially for us. It can improve some of our characteristics, let us have more love and cultivate our sentiment. But now, some studies have found that it can make children grow up healthily? ????
Keeping pets has many benefits for children’s growth. However, parents often refuse to keep pets because they are worried about their children’s safety, lack of space and time. In fact, if the child is not just out of curiosity or just a few minutes of heat, and the child is mature enough, you can still have a pet. ????
Compared with children without pets, children with companion animals felt less lonely, had stronger sharing tendency and were more willing to take care of young children. And keeping pets can make children feel important and greatly enhance their self-confidence and sense of responsibility. ????
However, raising companion animals also has negative effects, mainly increasing the burden of feeding and cleaning. According to the survey, most children (40.0%) were responsible for playing and walking with the companion animals, while only a small number of children (29.3%) were responsible for feeding and bathing the companion animals (14.8%). ¡¡??¡¡??
Companion animals, to a certain extent, have the function of playing some human roles and are good companions for children’s spiritual growth. At the same time, this study also enlightens us that for those families that are feeding or about to feed their partner animals, parents should consciously use partner animals as the media for educating their children, and they should not blindly take responsibility for their children in the process of raising companion animals, and implicitly integrate the education of sense of responsibility and independence, so that children can enjoy learning and become happy Long. ????
There are many advantages in keeping a pet, but keeping a pet should not only be combined with the child’s preferences, but also with the child’s age. So how to choose a pet? ?? ????
1. Consider security and difficulty
Parents should be careful not to choose aggressive animals as pets. Rare animals may not be easy to care for. We should choose a pet that is suitable for children and parents’ lifestyle. ???? ??????
2. Have the necessary communication with children
First of all, introduce to your child what you need to do to keep a pet, and let him know the efforts he has to make. Let TA talk about what kind of pet they like. ??????
3. Cats and dogs, or other small animals? There will be less work with cats because they don’t have to take them for walks, and cats are less dependent on people than other animals. ??????
Puppies are usually more active and require more attention and energy, but also more fun. If TA likes some small pets, consider guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, fish or birds. ????????????
